On Saturday night my mom and I met up with my papa, his girlfriend, my uncle, and my two cousins to go on a Lantern Tour at Mystic Seaport.
The idea of this Lantern Tour was that we traveled back in time and took a walk through a 1876 village. The acting was wonderful and they really had you interact with the show. We sang and danced and interacted with all the characters of the story as we visited several homes, shops and pubs. We even boarded a boat and met Santa Clause at the end of the show. It was a great time =)
If you are in the Southern New England area and interested in this tour check out their website here.
When you walk into Mystic Seaport you see a huge anchor letting you know you have arrived.
There's my family heading into check into the tour.
The decorations inside the information center were beautiful, and the best part was that I ran into an old friend during check in! My friend Chelsea was working at the information/ticket desk and I haven't seen her in about 4 years. I asked her how her baby was only to find out that he's almost 3!!! Time certainly flies by fast.
And MY favorites "babies" who aren't so little anymore =(
We were lucky enough to ask a woman who happened to be a photographer to take our picture inside the Seaport store afterwards. This was my favorite of the pictures she took.
It was a great time and I'm so glad that I was able to spend this time with my family. This time of year is so magical and special. =)
Hope you all had a nice weekend!
Did you do anything special this weekend?
